Subject: Excellent George Burns - Gracie Allen Show
In April 1957 we obtained our first television set. George Burns and Gracie Allen were seen on a weekly basis. Jack Benny was one of our favorites. These entertainers were first heard on radio and their talents carried over to television (with some plot and supporting cast changes). This was an excellent show with all three in top form.

Subject: A CLASSIC episode
This episode originally aired live on April 24, 1952, at the time George and Gracie appeared every other Thursday (their weekly filmed series began that fall). As most everyone knows, George and Jack were VERY close friends in real life, often trading appearances on each other's radio and TV shows {with and without Gracie}. So they knew a situation where each of them tries to top the other was "comedic gold" for both of them [and both were excellent monologists, thanks to their roots in vaudeville].

George also had an advantage in that he was one of the few people who could make Jack Benny laugh by doing "simple" things that no one else would find funny {and Jack was an easy "laugher"}- such as rolling down his car window and motioning Jack to pull over in the middle of busy Hollywood traffic, then driving off as if he had no intention of stopping to talk to him at all. As Jack later recalled, it took over a half-hour to compose himself before he could safely manuver his way into traffic again. So during the "dueling monologists" scene, watch closely at how Jack tries to keep from laughing out loud when George ad-libs a bit...

Subject: I didn't think it was in bad taste.
I thought it was as funny as the rest of the show. And I think I'm going to try that custard recipe, too. Just gotta find an old Life magazine with it now ...

Subject: The End
I love the show. However Benny continuously kissing Gracie at the end was in bad taste.

Love the trick that Jack and Gracie play on George at the end.
